Inexcitability of Cortical Dendrites to Electric Stimuli

A PROMINENT component of the electrical activity of the cerebral cortex is the surface negative potential lasting about 15 m.sec. It is evoked synaptically by stimulation of various corticipetal pathways (for example, the callosal fibres or optic radiations), antidromically on stimulating the corticifugal pyramidal axons, or by stimuli directly applied to… (More)
